    I am not talking about that run as... option in properties. Is it possible to install a win 95/98 application and run it with no problems in XP?

    I have someone who is hellbent on using some old apps and games.

    Windows 98 apps should run fine, windows 95 apps may give you ceratin issues.

    depends entirely on the app. For example, old copies of Half Life don't like XP...
